Students Discuss Image of Black Men

October 18, 2007

Albany - - Some Albany State students came together Thursday night to talk about how to improve the lives and image of African American men.

Alpha Phi Alpha and Phi Beta Sigma fraternities organized a roundtable discussion on issues relating to Black men.

They spoke about negative images found in the Hip Hop culture and the high number of Black men being incarcerated.

Students say by discussing these issues, they can influence change. 

"We have to catch men at an age to where an impact can still be made on them knowing that, while they're getting knowledge now that anything that they can learn should be attained now and any knowledge that's obtained needs to be retained," says student Trey Searles.

On November 1st, Darton College will hold a similar forum called the State of the African American Male.

Political and law enforcement leaders will speak. That event will be held in the Darton's J Building of Darton at 6 PM.
